NEXT EXERCISE LECTURE THURSDAY 24 OF MARCH, from 2:15pm to 5pm where Kristina will work on the exercise assigned for the previous lecture and for those ones that will be assigned tomorrow after the next lecture. She will also bring the Assignments marked and give some suggestions to those that will need the second chance to try to pass.

During the lecture of today the following program has been done:

NEW SEMINAR ROOM FOR THE LECTURE/EXERCISE SESSION ON MONDAY: Caml, Room number 3438, in the middle of the building.

Yesterday I introduced the Fourier Law and the Heat equation in 1 and then in n-dimensions. See for this the file (PDE_extra.pdf) upload on my web page: http://folk.uio.no/iliamu/. Then I used the characteristics method to work out the solution of the heat equation in 1-d under simple initial condition (See section 1.4.4 from the text book)

In my web page look also at the file with the calendar of the courses . It has been updated with some changes. In particular, for the next 3 weeks we have: next week no exercise session because we will have lecture both Monday 14 and Tuesday 15. The week after the lecture is moved from Tuesday the 22nd to Friday the 25th, same time and same room as Tuesday. Finally The first week of March exercise both on Monday the 28th and Tuesday the 1st of March.

Exercises for the next group sessions will be assigned after the lecture of Tuesday the 15th.

On the second lecture of the 1st of February we have seen in details, with some explicative examples, the Forward Euler Method (section 1.3 of the book) and the characteristic method to solve first-order homogeneous and non homogeneous equations (section 1.4.1 and 1.4.2 from the text book).

For next Monday work on the following exercises: 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 1.8. Start also to work on the remnant time of the Exercise sessions on Project 1.1 and keep going on with this also during the following weeks.

On my webpage it now possible to download the tentative program of all the lectures and exercise sessions that will be given during the ongoing semester, based on the teaching done last year.

http://folk.uio.no/iliamu/INF-MAT%203360%20Calendar%202011.pdf

Changes are of course possible, and will be always announced with a message. The program really done and the exercises given for the group session will always be specified with a new message after the lecture.

In the first lecture, Tuesday 24 I gave a general overwiew of the course: ODEs, PDEs etc… Sections 1.1 and 1.2 from the text book. For Monday 31 work on exercises 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and 1.4 from the text book.
